Make peace with a swirling sky

Holding tightly to a vague memory

of a make-believe mountain

drenched in quiet color.

Angels plant images like these

to sinners who repent in sleep

so they don’t drown in groggy sobs.

.

Bone and stone, star and sight

all carry the same oath, a blessing

when released on northern lights

and let go over dark seas.
